What should I do? I want to make the best fwonk I can, should I record on a wednesday? At what time, maybe midday?

Get rid of it & buy an SH-101. Only 1 oscillator on there so you'll never been in doubt again ;)

It depends. Are you a Gemini or a Pisces?

Only if you have the synth facing north. If it's facing south, record on Thursday between the hours of 0452 and 0531 GMT.
Switches, knobs, buttons, LEDs, LCD screens, monitors, keys, mice, jacks, sockets. Now two joysticks!

you joke about this, but RC networks are very susceptible to the earth's magnetic field. synth orientation relative to this field can result in subtle changes in both the wave shape and the filter resonate fahrvergnügen.

It seems like it would be pretty easy for someone with a lot of synths to make a demo of "raw" oscillator sounds from a DCO, VCO, VA, Wavetable etc machine for the sake of comparison. With all this discussion of the differences between them and whether or not one is desirable over the other, it would be very interesting to actually hear it in action. Plus i'd like to hear what VCO drift sounds like so I can try to emulate it on my non-analog! Sorry for the necropost - :mrgreen:
